Is it possible to refloat a ship that has capsized

Seeing the pictures of the Costa Concordia, laying on its side in shallow water, really breaks my heart. Can it be refloated? Is it possible to save it? Presumably it would cost a fortune to do so, if it were possible, but still less than the ship cost originally.
If it is possible, how would they do it? How do you get it from where it is now to some sort of drydock, and how do you get it righted?
